Aim of the course -

Students will acquire a detailed overview of advanced methods of molecular spectroscopy from the point of view of the instrumentation base and the common quantum-mechanical theory, and from the point of view of their applications in practice, applied research, and basic research as well. Special attention will be paid to chiropticc methods, THz spectroscopy, surface-enhanced methods and unique techniques of deci-, centi-, milli-, and submillimetric spectroscopies, where students will be introduced to experiments in the laboratories of the UCT Prague.
